Nixon’s Not A Crook…

12 janvier 2008 Non Par Comic Box

nixon.jpg[ENGLISH] January 10th, 2008 (Berkeley, CA) – This March YOUNGBLOOD’s Joe Casey and rising star Chris Burnham dig deep into the hidden super-villain underbelly of Los Angeles this March in the 120-page graphic novel, NIXON’S PALS. »The ‘Nixon’ in NIXON’S PALS is Nixon Cooper, parole officer to Los Angeles’ ever growing super-villain scene, » said writer Joe Casey. « This is hard boiled storytelling, basically putting a superpowered spin on what I love in crime fiction by writers like Elmore Leonard and Jim Thompson. »

Casey is not comparing NIXON’S PALS to Leonard’s work lightly. The world of NIXON’S PALS is far from bright, with Burnham bringing a refreshingly unique twist on the conventional grim and gritty super tale.

Burnham said, « Not only is Joe the type of writer who lets an artist run free, but NIXON’S PALS is exactly the type of comics I love to draw. It’s an insane romp, filled with giant furnance robots, sentient breasts, and a ton of really vile bastards. It’s fun for the whole family! »

NIXON’S PALS (JAN082057), a 120-page black and white graphic novel for $12.99, will be in stores March 26th, 2008.
